Complete Genome Sequence of a Novel Human Gammapapillomavirus Isolated from a Cervical Swab in Luxembourg

Genome Announc. 2018 Mar 15;6(11):e00114-18. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.00114-18.


A novel human papillomavirus genotype was detected in a cervical swab specimen by next-generation sequencing after rolling circular amplification. It was fully cloned and characterized. The L1 open reading frame showed 77% nucleotide similarity with the closest genotype, HPV101, belonging to the gamma-6 species.
